Yankees vs. Tigers score: Tigers jump out to 2-0 lead

The Detroit Tigers put up single runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, giving them a 2-0 lead over the New York Yankees through six innings. That first run came on a solo homer by Delmon Young, who brought his franchise record for total postseason homers to seven. The second run came on a double by Miguel Cabrera, who brought home Quintin Berry.

After Young's home run, Yankees starter Phil Hughes walked Andy Dirks and was removed from the game with what is being called a stiff back. He was replaced by David Phelps, who surrendered the second run of the game, though it was unearned. The Yankees have used a total of five pitchers so far in the game, with Boone Logan inducing a crucial double play from Cabrera with bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth.

Tigers starter Justin Verlander, meanwhile, is cruising right along. The reigning Cy Young winner has allowed just one hit through six innings, while striking out two batters and walking none.
